Faster, more Customizable Google Experience now Offered to iPhone Users

New Google on Apple iPhone

Google has announced new enhancements to the integrated Google experience on the Apple iPhone. The earlier version which was launched just over a month ago, offers web applications like Search, Gmail, Calendar, Reader and more. Now, the interface allows users to access the applications much faster and easier along with improved usability.

This Google interface was announced at Macworld. The improvements announced include:

  • Improved UI: The applications look and feel slicker and they are easier to activate, navigate and use via a touch-screen.
  • Customization of default tabs: Now Google users can have easy access to their favorite applications by customizing the applications that appear on the Google.com menu bar. Users simply choose their favorite Google applications to bring them to the front menu, ensuring that they’ll be close at hand whenever they’re needed. Switching between applications is effortless, as users only need to sign in once to access their Gmail, Calendar, Reader, Docs, and Picasa accounts.
  • Speedier Gmail: New emails will automatically show up so there’s no need to manually refresh inboxes. And the new auto-complete feature for contacts makes composing emails faster than ever.
  • Speedier Calendar: With our new month view, users can glance at an entire month of appointments.
  • iGoogle: Now Google users can access their iGoogle gadgets on the iPhone. Everything they’ve customized on their iGoogle homepage including weather, stocks, and news feeds now appear on their iPhones. To go to iGoogle, simply click on the iGoogle link on the Home tab.
  • iPhone users will also be able to customize their iGoogle page on their computer at www.igoogle.com.
